affect the pentagon. he spoke tuesday evening at the center for new american security about the so-called fiscal cliff and defense priorities. [applause] good evening and thank you for coming. >> it is an honor to be introducing my old boss. >> defense secretary leon panetta looks at how budget cuts could affect the pentagon. we spoke tuesday evening at the center for new american security about the fiscal cliff and fed priorities. >> thank you for coming. it is an honor to be back and an honor to be introducing my old boss. as you know, secretary of the net debt is one of the most respected and experienced hands in washington. his resume is legendary. chairman of the budget committee back in the day when they actually passed a budget, director of the office of management and budget, and chief of staff to president clinton when the white house, director of the central intelligence agency, and now secretary of defense, so the question is what in the world are you going to do next. this extraordinary resume does not do justice to the man. leon panetta is a wonderful human being and i
the sources of american power our, that you say the pentagon or the size of the federal debt. like, if you're the biggest debtor into a big issue certain power. are you optimistic that these can be really reversed, like 30 seconds because i'm very optimistic about america's future. i think we have to approach that future with confidence. we have to get our house right at home, but we have to be prepared to engage with confidence abroad. we still are that shining light on the hill that people look to. they are disappointed when we don't deliver. we are disappointed when we don't deliver. i think we can, both at home and abroad, find a way to move forward. it's not going to be simple. our government takes longer to get things done than the real economy would like. we've got to intercept the real and the political economy, but at the end of day am optimistic that we can make progress. >> thank you. ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much. [applause] spent i'm like doctor doom. i come on stage when it's time to go. the eternal foot man holding your code. >> tonight in primetime, we get a close
a pilgrimage at the pentagon city mall in arlington, virginia. she joins us now. beautiful backdrop. what's it like over there, stacy? >> good morning. alina, you know, i'm not one of those folks that wants all the tech toys. i want to come to the mall, buy some clothes and jewelry and makeup and that's what you're going to find here. if i didn't know it was 6:00 in the morning and pitch-black outside i would think it's a normal day in the mall. in the hallways right now, somewhat sparse. george said it well when they're expecting not a gangbuster year. but the mall opened at 5:00 a.m. and there were certainly shoppers here. they have deals in every corner. a lot of people are turning to online. they have a lot of apps now where you can shop before shopping and find 9 best deals and not necessarily come to the mall and hunt and gather. you can figure out what you want before you get to the mall. but we have a steady stream of folks. i think that retailers are really hoping for some good sales. cyber monday is coming up, as you know, and they're staying busy at pentagon city. i haven't got
correspondent jennifer griffin lived and works in that region joineds us live from the pentagon. good evening. what do you think. would the deal have happened without the secretary of state hillary clinton's intervention? >> yes and no. it's interesting to note that hamas had agreed to this agre agreement 24 hours before the secretary arrived. it was supposed to, the cease-fire was supposed to go in to effect at 9:00 p.m. local time last night. that is when hillary clinton was landing in jerusalem to meet with prime minister of israel. that is when she began her 24 hours of shuttle diplomacy. it's interesting that the white house is taking credit for the truce. the statement from the white house said that the president recommended to thehe accept the deal. the deal that the egyptians had achieved with hamas. what is striking to me how s how much power it will give to spoilers as an iranian proxy group like jihad and popular resistance committee, because everything falls apart if there is any fire from the gaza strip. it looks a little tenuous now. the one achievement is that she made the pres
there and 100,000 u.s. paid contractors paid by the pentagon still occupying afghanistan. the one change we have seen this year has been the withdrawal of the troops from iraq. that was the centerpiece from where u.s. troops were fighting around the world. now, we're looking at afghanistan as the biggest war zone that is acknowledged. the interesting thing that makes it difficult for people like you and i who want to look at where the u.s. troops are, the lists that we see are a very hard to actually get good information. i was looking yesterday at a few different lists on the pentagon's web sites. one of them is a list of personnel where are u.s. shoulders are. there are about 195,000 u.s. soldiers and marines that are based around the world. we hear in general they are in about 150 countries. when you look at the list, there is only about 40 countries listed. why is that? we are only listing the countries where there is more than 100 troops permanently based there. that is kind of weird because that means is only about 1/4 of the country -- about 1/5 of the countries where we have troops are m
for the pentagon and fluctuations in global energy prices can have dramatic, dramatic effects on defense spending. for every $10 increase in a barrel of oil it costs the american military annually an extra $1.3 billion. recognizing the potential instability that d.o.d.'s current energy needs can cause, military experts from across the various branches of the armed services have begun looking at ways to cut energy use and find energy alternative. now, i continued to hear all of this discussion about how this is somehow a green agenda and it's a suber havesive plot and it's being forced on a resistant president. and i just want to take a minute or two, mr. president, and say i don't think anything could be further from the truth and just wanted to describe for a moment why i feel that way. first, those who oppose defense energy initiatives often argue in today's fiscal environment, the country can't afford to waste money on energy programs when it's necessary to provide for our nation's security. i don't believe, mr. president, it is an either/or proposition, because my view is that an investment i
of strategy, yes, it's essential, important, including for the first time two years ago, the pentagon had a conference i was there in which we discussed india and american cooperation in the pacific. never happened before. it does not mean [indiscernible] we are taking positions which are corporative, dynamic, and which recognize that nation's change. people change. we have to keep abreast of changing conditions, if you like. >> i want to pose one last thing. i look today to see how much china held in u.s. treasurys serves about 1.55 trilion. -- $1.55 trillion. we often talk about power in a classical sense, but there is no doubt economies matter. whether it has been leon panetta, bob gates, admiral mullen, the constant focus on the economic dynamism of the country -- i do not know canada's net account with china, but it raises the fundamental question of whether american debt is an asset or liability. the conference yesterday or recently in davos for someone made the comment that it is the size of the pentagon and the size of american that there were too big to fail and those debt holder
government is money borrowed to sustain food stamps as well as the pentagon. we ought to be thinking of that in terms of our values and our future. let me speak to a couple of elements here that i think progressives should keep in mind. progressives cannot afford to stand on the sidelines in this fiscal cliff debate. important critical decisions will be made soon that will affect this country for 10 years. i think we need to be a part of this conversation. we need to be open to some topics and some issues that are painful and hard for us to talk about. we cannot stand by the sidelines in denial that this is ever going to engage us in the things we value. we cannot be so naive to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems. i believe that is an important part of a solution. we have to look to reform and change that is significant, that preserves many of the values and programs that brought us political life, and we cannot believe that merely ignoring these programs or not engaging will solve the problem. pick up any of the newspapers and look for the full-page ads and yo
-- and streamline both the pentagon and the federal bureaucracy. medicare and social security over time would reduce benefits give on the higher income families. your big message here is social security and medicare have to be on the table. there's no choice. >> i think most people understand that medicare has to be part of the deal. and most people believe today that you ought to do social security on a parallel track. >> reporter: both men blame the death of their report on lobbyists and warn that special interests are lined up again to fend off the budget cuts coming their way. >> everybody is just like my mama. they are. >> reporter: just like what, sir? >> like my mama. she turns to me, and she says, "your daddy would be proud of you, you're putting our fiscal house in order, you have to stay at it, but don't mess with my medicare." >> reporter: bowles/simpson went nowhere two years ago, but its essential ideas are back in play. and the basic tax reform it called for-- once politically impossible-- is being embraced by both parties today. wyatt andrews, cbs news, washington. >> glor: the c.e.o.
clear and the president was clear during the campaign that the pentagon has actually asked for less than what republicans, you know, have wanted to give them. there are a lot of outdated systems that just don't need to be paid for in our military budget. and that should be okay. but it really does have to start with taking away the death grip that grover norquist has had on not just the republicans who signed his pledge, but on the american people. i think if you ask any normal person, they would say, who? they have no idea who this man is. and he should not have any source of input into our economy. >> true. [laughter] >> it should be over. this death grip has -- heather: so your answer, so, jehmu -- >> spending is so terrible in washington, d.c., the waste is unbelievable. we have so much debt, we've got to address that right away. heather: so jehmu's saying to the military, and, didi, in terms of spending cuts specifically what area? >> well, we've got to cut across the board. washington, d.c. is so bloated and in such terrible -- i mean, we're broke as a country. we need to make sure
above isn't just for the cia or the pentagon. this quadracopter is filled with cameras that can film above and below. no major price slashing here. but brookstone says that didn't matter. they're flying off the shelves. cyber monday may be a thing of the past because the deals started so early. walmart says they'll match prices bought from things from november 1st to christmas day. i bought a $10 slow-cooker. i don't know what you cook in a slow-cooker. >> but it looked appealing to you. >> that's right. >> great to see you. >>> we're going to turn, now, to the passing of a tv icon. larry hagman died yesterday, suffering from complications from his battle with cancer. the star of "dallas" and "i dream of jeanie" will be remembered for his character, j.r. ewing. he was as charismatic as he was evil. he was one of the most colorful and villainous characters on television. j.r. ewing. >> you'll find other ways to skin a cat. >> reporter: when larry hagman took the role on, it was only supposed to last a few weeks. but "dallas" became a hit and part of television history. in his last sit
at how budget cuts could affect the pentagon. he spoke of the center for a new american security about the so- called fiscal quick and defense priorities. >> his resume is what i will call legendary. democratic senator. chairman of the house budget committee when they actually passed budgets. director of office of management and budget, and chief of staff to president clinton and white house. now, secretary of defense. the question, what in the world will you do next? this does not do justice to the man. he is a wonderful human being with many different facets, and in some ways, a man of contrast. i will give you a couple of examples. he is known for his warm, italian bear hugs. he is also known around the world for the laser like focus he displayed in hunting down osama bin laden. he often holds meetings in his pentagon office with his dog curled up around his feet as he vigorously presses a particular war plan will it be of particular interest. when traveling he is known to hang out in the back of the plane with staff and journalists. with a scotch on the rocks in hand. and waxing el
and the unique experience even at the pentagon and security advisor to the president. he made an early point i was familiar with based on my experience with 35 years of congress that we have all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as congress that had parts of the energy package that never had a way to take a look at what should be our policy and came up with this idea the council to recommend here comeau recalled the different departments chaired by the department of energy and secretary in agencies that reach out to all the interested parties to make sure their views take consideration. but it is royal energy review. it's very different from what they do at the pentagon. with this technique but it's helpful and it will be hall posters talk about a strategy in the broader view through the quaternary old report to really get into details. and the congress of course we've got all these different committees as part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. i called the two minute she -- saint pete, we need some, but not. every now and then i wo
the pentagon hoping to force the military to drop its policy that excludes them from thousands of ground combat positions. all four women are veterans of the war in iraq and afghanistan. they main the combat exclusion role is discriminatory. >> the policy limits my future in the marine corps. i would be assigned to positions based on my gender rather than on my qualifications or my accomplishments. this didn't make sense personally or politically and it did not make sense for the military. >> she also says this prevents commanders from deciding the best way to fight. >>> so what would you do with $500 million? that's tonight's record-shattering powerball jackpot expected to climb higher. millions of americans in 42 states are trying to parlay $2 into half a billion. alison kosik is live from times square this morning. what's happening there? 60% of ticket sales are expected to be made today. we know the odds are pretty slim, but people are still going for it. >> reporter: they are still going for it. you know, you talk about the odds, the odds are slim. 175 million to 1 are the odds that you'll
on social media sites. >> recently vice president joe biden was in attendance at a pentagon announcement of a new virginia class fast-attack navy submarine that'll be called the uss delaware. it's expected to be launch inside 2018. speaking at this 20-minute briefing were second lady jill biden, navy secretary ray mabus and delaware senator tom carper. >> thank you all for coming today to the navy ship naming announcement. today's briefing will consist of statements only, there will be no questions and answers following the statement. along with secretary of the navy ray mabus, today we are honored to be joined by second lady, dr. jill biden, and her special guest, her husband, vice president biden. [laughter] senator tom carper and lieutenant governor matt denn. thank you all for being here today, and if you're all ready, i will turn it over to secretary ray mabus, our 75th secretary of the navy. >> well, thank you all for being here. i particularly want to thank dr. biden for being here, senior senator from delaware, tom carper, and the lieutenant governor of delaware, matt denn. and,
answer to the pentagon. a city threw a bomb on to the bus or left one it is not a suicide bomber, but 10 people were injured. three of them very seriously wounded here in this attack. the two suspects on the list would be hamas or islamic jihad, both operating out of the gaza strip. hamas is peace talks and trying to figure out if a cease fire over israel with the rockets and the bombings on the other side going into the gaza strip . islamic jihad has a different agend a. they are backers in iran who are pushing for rocket fire against the gaz strip. we should have a shot up of this on our live view, you can actually see this bus that stopped. this harkens back to the days of the second intfada where you had bombing on the buses mainly suicide bombings. this doesn't appear to be that. but it is a mange failure for the israeli intelligence services in a critical time, whether it is going to derail the peace talks or not is yet to be scene. obviously the fact that secretary clinton is in town and able to be the a voice of calm could mean that everyone goes to cairo and gets involved in the

in the white house situation room or at the state department or the pentagon said it's not worth it. we can't go in and help them. and to understand how long the attack continued, that's really troublesome. the fact that the united states cannot respond within an hour's time to an attack like that on its own state department? that's just inkrcredible information to give to the world and if i were a member of the diplomatic core, i would be troubled. >> i'm sure they are. when they talked to general petraeus, they talked about the intelligence. it goes back to the intelligence for me. i have asked others before how this does not compare, the susan rice issue, to the condoleezza rice issue on weapons of mass destruction. she was also wrong when she was the national security adviser, right? she had information and she talked, remember, to wolf blitzer about let's not have the smoking gun become a mushroom cloud. fast forward three years in 2005 when she was up to be secretary of state, it was lindsey graham who was furious that the democrats were pushing back. it was senator john mccain who we
, where the number of public trust the pentagon on accordingly. so one might want to ask a question about proportionality. proportionate to the investment the state makes and who is making the decisions. we have a wonderful opportunity to lead the conversation. the governor, a year ago commissioned a committee to look at how do we strengthen in vermont the relationship and partnership between the university of vermont and the state. a very positive affirmation and approach on his part. the report came back and said that with 25 board of trustees members with the university of vermont, the proportion in light of the very substantial decrease in funding? it indicates that that is the lowest state funding for a public university per capita i don't know what the appropriate balance should be, but we will have an opportunity because the governor wants to have a discussion in the state about the relationship of public funding and who are the trustees and who should be making these decisions. perhaps thermopylae began in the conversation. >> i'm from the university of vermont and i came up to sa

. there are two things he said and i respect him very much. he said number one the pentagon. the fraud, the excess, the waste. that has got to come down. he said what else? what else are we going to cut? he said the healthcare. we have to improve healthcare and the whole issue is if you get the universal healthcare, then you've avoided this medicaid medicare, you know, whatever and it is more efficient because you're not sending money -- spending money for profit. you're doing it for the v.a. and for everybody. >> bill: i forget, doris igor, jump in here, too i forget the exact number but the congressional budget office proved that -- you're right. single payer would be even more efficient but we're not going to go there because we didn't. but obama care would save hundreds of millions -- hundreds of billions of dollars in delivery of healthcare costs by making it more efficient and bringing more people into the system and therefore have more capacity to deliver. >> you lower the rate of growth which is the key to lowerin
